Mac emulation in a web page

The Internet Archive is now offering old Mac operating systems and apps, which run in emulation in a web page. The entire Mac emulator runs in JavaScript.

Now people searching for a half-remembered old Mac program may be able to click on a search result, click the start button at the top of the page, and use the program. It’s testament to how powerful today’s computers and software technologies have gotten. This is an important part of history, and now it’s available for everyone to see and use.
